Let the countdown begin! There are just two months remaining until the second annual ROCK CARNIVAL - taking place on September 30, October 1 and October 2 at its new location in Lakewood, NJ at FirstEnergy Park - home of the Lakewood Blue Claws! The festival is thrilled to be hosted at their new home, which will feature a more efficient layout for attendees to enjoy activities.

"Our ballpark is well positioned with ample space on the field, the seats, the concourse, and the front of the park, plus with substantial parking space, to maximize the experience for each fan," states Steve Farago, VP of Operations & Events, Lakewood Blue Claws.

More room also equals more food trucks! As last year's attendees know, one of the largest attractions at the ROCK CARNIVAL is the wide array of food trucks. Based on 2015's high demand, the number of food trucks serving their scrumptious culinary creations at this year's carnival has been boosted to 50! See below for a preliminary list of returning and new food truck vendors:

As with its inaugural year - which drew a staggering 50,000+ attendees - the second annual ROCK CARNIVAL will also feature classic amusement rides and entertainment, high-action Professional Wrestling, a wide selection of tasty brews, pig racing and more. This year's event will also see the addition of a children's fun zone. It's a weekend of big fun for the whole family!

As mentioned above, ROCK CARNIVAL is pleased to announce the addition of top-charting rockers HALESTORM and THE USED to the Sunday line-up. The bands join a stellar line-up currently featuring Friday's headliner, shock rock king ALICE COOPER, and Saturday's presentation of TWISTED SISTER's official tri-state farewell performance. The show will also feature DAUGHTRY - featuring its namesake Chris Daughtry, contestant on the fifth season of Fox's American Idol - CLUTCH, OVERKILL, ACE FREHLEY, FUEL, MONSTER MAGNET, LIFE OF AGONY, SEBASTIAN BACH, JIM BREUER AND THE LOUD & ROWDY, and many more.

HALESTORM states, "SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY! We can't wait to bring the rock n' roll madness with all of our Freaks at the second annual ROCK CARNIVAL! We just really want to watch the pig racing! See you there!"

THE USED singer Bert McCracken adds, "We look forward to heading back to NJ for the ROCK CARNIVAL to play for those die-hard USED fans. See you all in October!"

This year's festivities will also include a brand new "Classic" Friday night celebration, which will feature tributes to classic rock favorites! ALMOST QUEEN will play your QUEEN favorites, ALIVE! '75 will take us back with some KISS, and ZAKK SABBATH - featuring vocalist/guitarist Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE), bassist Blasko (ZZY OSBOURNE, ex-ROB ZOMBIE) and drummer Joey Castillo (ex-QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE) - will perform BLACK SABBATH classics.

"ROCK CARNIVAL is very excited to finally announce HALESTORM, THE USED and the others who will help round out this year's line-up," states ROCK CARNIVAL producer John D'Esposito. "The festival outlined a plan that would deliver famous classic rock Friday, strong family friendly rock packaging Saturday and to close Sunday with active radio rock headliner. We put a strong emphasis on stacking the line up with New Jersey and immediate area acts who have had a long tradition of playing the infamous Jersey rock scene over years. Horns in the air, let's get ready to rock!"
